One of the first considerations you need to make when shopping for children's bedding, especial for young children, is safety. While that sounds crazy, in three out of every five cases of a baby suffocating it is because they had unsafe bedding. Bedding for kids that are very young should not be extremely soft and fluffy. They can easily suffocate in their sleep. Bedding should also fit snuggly against the mattress. It is recommended not to put a blanket on a young child, as this can also lead to suffocation. Instead, dress your baby in very warm sleeping clothes to keep him or her warm. This is much safer. Always let baby’s sleep on their backs, until they are defeloped enough to roll over on their own.
You are going to be washing your children's bedding a lot. Children have accidents during the night, or get sick, and soil their bedclothes. Buy bedding made out of durable, fade-resistant fabrics, such as cotton blends. This will ensure that your bedding will hold up to the abuse it is most likely going to face. Also, be sure to follow manufacturer’s cleaning instructions. Avoid buying dry clean only bedding for young children, unless you are prepared for a steep dry cleaning bill. Only was the bedding on the recommended temperature.
If you are wondering what are the best brands for baby and children's bedding, look at two specific brands. The first great brand is CoCaLo. CoCaLo makes trendy, fashionable bedding specifically for kids under the names OshKosh Baby, Kimberly Grant, CoCaLo, and Baby Martex. Olive Kids is another great brand for children’s bedding, specializing in creative designs that are not picked up after TV characters , which can be hard to find.
Once your child is old enough to have a preference, consider letting him or her have a say in your nect children’s bedding purchase. They may have a color or character they prefer. By giving them a choice, they will be much more excited to receive their new bedding. Sure it is not a toy, but it is something that they picked out.
If you are in the market for baby bedding, read carefully what is included in the set you are looking at. A four piece set usually has a crib bumper, sheet, blanket, and dust-ruffle. Other parts may include a diaper stacker, pillow, and curtain. The pillow is not recommended inside the crib, but can be used as a nice decoration in the nursery. Traditionally bedding for older children comes with a comforter, and sheets. Sometimes the manufacturer will throw in a set of pillow shams. Look carefully to ensure that the bedding you are purchasing has what you need it to have.
The internet is a great place to shop for children’s bedding. There are many online marketplaces where you can get bedding for children at a much reduced price than in the retail stores. Watch out for high shipping costs, and make sure your purchase will arrive when you need it to.
